For British Eyes Only: How do you refer to the American Revolutionary War?
posted by kyleg to society & culture (39 answers total) 3 users marked this as a favorite
Is the war taught in general history classes? How important is it considered in the scope of the class, and the British Empire? Are there good web resources or books available in the US that can give me a good idea of the British perspective on the American Revolution?
For bonus points: can you give me the primary school version of the narrative of the war? For example, here one might start with the Boston Tea Party. Basically, I want to hear the other side of the story.
